Funny that. All three versions of 5/5/77 in the Archive are stream only soundboards.

wtf? I guess your right. I just looked and its not in the downloadable shows. My bad. Maybe I used the link on the GD homepage showing the most downloaded items? That doesn't reallynmake sense though. Now I'm curious how the hell I downloaded a soundboard show!

Anyways, the question still remains. Unless this does not happen to files from audience recordings?

It sounds as If your player is set on shuffle. Try finding the play options and disable shuffle, if that don't work, headbutt your monitor

Maybe you didn't actually download the music, but rather the links to the shows here on the archive. Disconnect from the net and try to play them. If you get nothing then you just have the links. This is how I can have SBDs on iTunes without actually "having" them. All iTunes has is the link, and I have to be online to actually play them.

But streaming via iTunes using the m3u file still plays the tracks in the right order. Can't be that.

I recall back in the day, i would run across an occasional show where the tracks were not actually in the correct order. I don't recall this for streaming, just for downloading. So i would download the show, add it to itunes and then have to re-order the show. I think some were uploaded and they didn't have the d1t3 etc labeling or something. Maybe our friend hit upon one like that.

Well I guess that could be... I accept what you say, of course, but I've just never, so far as I can recall, had that problem. Sometimes you just get gd74-08-04d2t04, or whatever, so you have to type in the track names yourself, but generally, I think, the track numbering is there.

And then there's the small matter of 5-5-77 being a stream only show. I think the root of the problem might just be traced back to that.

thanks to all for your help. As soon as my schedule allows, I'll try downloading another show and see if the problem persists. I still want to know how I downloaded a soundboard show. Beginers luck? I want more SB shows :(

check this out.

in the notes:

"*other transfers of this show do exist, and are tracked differently."

The order listed looks the same on all three to me however maybe the "d1t3" are not.

All that means is that some versions split the show up slightly differently. For example, the Betty Board you link has:

track 7 - Deal
track 8 - Lazy Lightning
track 9 - Supplication

whereas this unknown source:
http://www.archive.org/details/gd1977-05-05.sbd.unknown.261.shnf

has:
track 7 - Deal
track 8- tuning
track 9 - Lazy Lightning>Supplication

That's all that 'tracked differently' means. These arbitrary divisions don't affect the running order.

Ok - cutting to the chase, I just can't replicate your problem. Every track I've ever downloaded from the Archive is tagged d1t1, d1t2...d3t4, etc I just copy them straight over into iTunes and shazam! all is as it should be. It's just never been an issue for me - so now you have me puzzled.
